Peer Review Process

Plagiarism check: All submitted articles will be checked for plagiarism using the software "Ouriginal". As per UGC norms, similarities up to 10% will be accepted. In case of finding plagiarism of more than 10%, the article will be returned to the author for necessary corrections. If the plagiarism is more than 50%, the article will be rejected.

Editorial review and screening: After submission, the article will first undergo editorial review, where the article will be reviewed by one member from editorial board to ensure whether the article meets the journal requirements. If required, the article will be sent back to the author for minor revision, so as to meet the journal criteria.

Double blinded review: Further, if the article is found suitable; blinded article will be sent to two reviewers from the concerned subject for peer review. Otherwise it will be rejected and author will be communicated accordingly. The article will be provisionally accepted if both reviewers recommend. The comments from reviewers will be blinded and communicated to author for suitable modifications. In case of non-recommendations from both the reviewers the article will be rejected and the decision will be communicated to author. In case of difference of opinion between two reviewers, the article will be referred to reviewer from editorial board or a third reviewer. His/her opinion will be final. After receipt of required corrections/modifications from author, final decision will be communicated to author.
